Tom Bowen Legacy Trust Fund UK

The Tom Bowen Legacy Trust Fund UK (TBLTF) was formed to support children with a variety of disabilities. The object of the TBLTF is to improve the quality of life for children who have received Bowen Therapy treatment by providing grants for electrical, mechanical, sensory or electronic equipment as well as access to treatment, advice and food supplements from suitably qualified professionals where this may improve the physical, mental or emotional health of the child.

TBLTF is a non-profit organisation, set up with a small charity constitution. It was set up in 2010 as the UK branch of the original fund based in Geelong, Australia, formed in 2003 by co-trustees Ron Phelan (member of the Bowen Therapists' Federation of Australia) and Chris Reed (president of the Bowen Association of Australia). Meet the current Trustees.

Tom Bowen (the originator of the various forms of Bowen Therapy taught today) found the time he spent helping children with disabilities extremely rewarding and the TBLTF was initiated to continue this important work.

Applications for grants can be made online or by requesting an application form on our contact page.
